Penguin Enriched eBooks
http://us.penguingroup.com/static/pa...xt/eBooks.htmlHas any of you bought any book in the Penguin Enriched eBooks series?
They are supposed to be specially formatted to work in devices such as the Kindle and should contain 'extras' such as illustrations.
The reviews in Amazon are from people that bough the hardcover and not necessarily by Kindle owners. Any input?

I have Pride & Prejudice, but mine says it's the "Enhanced" edition not the "Enriched" edition.
The extras are pretty nice IMO. I think HarryT might have posted a review somewhere here on MR back when Penguin originally did P&P.
EDIT: My book file says Enhanced, but the Amazon page for the book I have says Enriched.

I would definitely say the Pride & Prejudice Enhanced/Enriched version is worth it, not so much for the illustrations, but the other extras - although I have the version for the Sony
So long, and thanks for all the fish
